I have known Lisa forever. I mean, forever forever. We are more like sisters in some ways, particularly because we have that special closeness sisters share but don’t see each other quite as often as we would like. When she told me she and her awesome boyfriend Al had gotten engaged, I nearly hit the floor. I was thrilled to do engagement photos for her. We picked Valley Forge Park as the location–special to Lisa in many ways. She grew up close by and absolutely loves to run the trails for a great workout.
I am not the biggest fan of super processed photos. I know there is value in Lightroom or Photoshop tweaks, of course, but sometimes it can be overdone. However, there was something about these shots–the leather jackets, the gorgeous blonde hair–that was just crying out for a little vintage, edgy feel:
Can’t you just feel the attraction between these two?
Lisa is absolutely gorgeous. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
I brought along one of my vintage film cameras for the shoot and used it as a prop to show off Lisa’s engagement ring. Al did a great job selecting…It’s so sweet and simple, and so, so, so Lisa.
Hello, Vanity Fair! Those eyes…
Lisa and Al, I wish you all the happiness in the world, and I can’t wait to shoot your wedding!
